Carina Store

location Tokyo
function shop
contributed by Franks

Carina is a children's and mother's clothing store, designed by Kazuyo Sejima. The shop is wrapped in two façades. The inner façade is made up of a steel structure and large glass windows. The outer façade is made out of white expanded metal, similar to the weaves that were used for the New Museum at the Bowery in New York. The outer façade covers up almost the complete building, except for the entrance door and one window on the second floor. This is a daring approach as it provides an introspective look at first glance. But, as in many recent architecture in Tokyo, the shop comes to life when you take a closer look and even more so when dusk falls over the city.
